Editor Danielle Hanna asked the Facebook group Editors’ Association of Earth for suggestions of worthwhile podcasts for editors. I’ve outlined members’ recommendations below. To suggest other helpful podcasts, email us.

From Jennifer’s website: A radio show dedicated to the craft of writing, the lives of writers and the business of writing. The show is taped at KMRE 102.FM studios at 1312 Bay Street in Bellingham, Wash., Whatcom County — the farthest northwest county in the contiguous United States. Jennifer Karchmer is the creator, host and producer. She interviews local writers, authors, editors, proofreaders, bloggers and journalists (and sometimes baseball players).

From Girl Friday Productions’ website: From the Margins is a podcast that explores the story behind the story—laying bare the tantalizing tidbits that don’t make it onto the page. Whether it’s Carine McCandless giving the real scoop behind Into the Wild, or alpinist writer Leif Whitaker discussing the rigid culture of mountaineering, or rocker and provocateur Peaches exploring bending gender norms, From the Margins will delight and surprise you with every fascinating episode.

From the creators:  Podcast for freelance writers and creatives who want to cut the crap and win better work, better clients.

The famous and fabulous Mignon Fogarty.

From the creators:  Helping you become a better writer. Join Shawn Coyne, author of Story Grid and a top editor for 25+ years, and Tim Grahl, struggling writer, as they discuss the ins and outs of what makes a story great.
